    Out for consoles and PC in 2017 and development is being done by Kylotonn who I think developed the most recent WRC game.

    I hope it's going to do the sport justice but I can't help but think it might turn out a bit shit unfortunately. Imagine what Codemasters and there recent Evo acquisition could have done after the work they did with DriveClub and the bikes DLC. Ah well better than nothing.

    I've been waiting for a TT game for a very, very long time now. I still think this'll be dogwank though.

    It's bound to be, which is disappointing because I'm glued to the TT every year.

    Delayed

    The wait continues. WRC7 is done and with that turning out better than expected I'm feeling a bit more optimistic about this now.

    It looks surprisingly decent in the video there.

    WRC7 is good, so going to preorder this one:) Since they've announced it's delayed to improve the gameplay it can only be good i think (i read early tests gave good feedback already, incl by actual tt riders).

    Surprised EG hasn't mentioned this yet, since it's a uniquely British title...

    Woof, that trailer from a few weeks back has really poor sound. It gives me the impression of someone short shifting on their daily commute, barely pushing 4,000rpm as they reach a breakneck speed of 25mph.

    That looks brilliant, I feel like I could spend the rest of this and the next generation of consoles learning the IoM TT, might as well look great then,
    My only criticism is the slightly awkward twitchy rider movement, especially bumping against track edges. They all do it though and I suppose that’s where the game needs to overrule the sim so you’re not constantly crashing.
    The onboard visor view looks simultaneously gorgeous and absolutely terrifying.

    Looking forward to this, still yet to grab Ride 2 but may ditch that and just buy this new.

    I hope EG bother to review it or at least acknowledge it exists. They had/have a reviewer that was actually a biker who I seem to recall reviewed the World superbike X game and some Moto GP games.

    Watching that video the onboard stuff looked great. Not sure about the 3rd person view especially when the camera zooms in on the rear and slightly of centre on approach to corners. It's not something I've seen in any other bike game I've played so be interesting to see how well that works.

    Fuel and tire wear a factor in this I wonder? Be a shame to see the pit lane but never actually use it.

    Another- skip to 1:30 to cut the blurb and then 3:00 for a long straight, sensation of speed is all there.

    @Decks PC preview build.

    So grainger games has this for pre order at £37.99 on PS4/XboxOne
    Arrive by release day?

    Next best was Base.com I think. Its nice that they haven't done any deals with GAME for pre order content ect.

    Can't find what frame rate it runs at on the consoles anywhere. If it's 30 it's going to kill the sense of speed quite a bit.

    I want it to be good soo bad! The latest trailer looks like they've made how the rider moves a lot more realistic than how it looked a few months ago, but I really don't like the crazy knee flapping that looks like it'll happen no matter how gently you move the thumbstick. The scenery does look amazing though!

    Insane as in shit? Because 90% of players are going brake like they’re cornering in a car and drive into the back of you?

    @mothercruncher

    If anything it might be the opposite especially on the full TT circuit. If the game runs like the real event it'll be a staggered start with each racer running 10 seconds apart which is decided by the riders qualification time.

    I like the sound of that myself now so hopefully that's how it's done. Even if its a lottery situation to cut down on time spent trying to qualify.

    Also this isn't going to appeal to everyone and the same goes for Dakar expected later this year. It should
    be active enough to provide some good online racing and even better if it has a separate leaderboard system.

    I hope they have implemented motion control on the controller, if done well that should be good.

    It does look great, definitely buying it if the reviews are good and the frame rate is locked.
